Corona Virus Pandemic – Covid-19

On 27th December 2019 the entire world came to the realisation that there is a very infectious novel corona virus infection in Wuhan, China. This was referred to as novel Corona Virus (n-CoV). n-CoV is related to the corona viruses that cause H. Influenza, Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) which occurred in China between 2003-2004 and  Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) that occurred in Saudi Arabia in 2012. n-CoV causes highly infectious severe respiratory disease called Covid-19. As at time of writing there has been 4,029,145 Covid-19 cases worldwide and 276,473 dead. The entire world is still grappling to find solution to the corona virus infection. Vaccines are not yet available and infected people continue to die in huge numbers. Concerted efforts must be made by everybody to limit the spread of this corona virus pandemic.
